cognitive-behavioral therapyCognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is an evidence-based therapy that helps teach those dealing with addiction to closely study their emotions to better cope with the triggers for their addictions. Research has shown that CBT is highly effective, especially where traditional therapies may not be as effective. At Solution Based Treatment, our most robust addiction treatment and recovery programs take place in our homestyle, residential treatment setting.

Solution Based Training’s CBT is used by addiction recovery therapists because it can help clients struggling with addiction learn skills that are helpful in their recovery and useful for everyday life. This type of therapy is especially effective when combined with our addiction treatment programs.

What Is CBT?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help those dealing with substance abuse, as well as depression and mental illness. This type of therapy focuses on recognizing the patterns of negative thoughts associated with addictions and then learning how to control those emotions so that they don’t control you. CBT involves several steps that will help you find out why these patterns occur and do the hard work to change your way of thinking to focus on the positive. Retraining your brain like this isn’t easy, but it is worthwhile for your well-being.

As part of CBT, you work with a counselor or therapist on the problems associated with addiction and, together, come up with positive solutions.

Benefits of CBT

Cognitive-behavioral therapy at Solution Based Treatment helps clients overcome substance use disorders by:

  • Reinforcing how to communicate effectively
  • Eliminating negative thoughts and low self-esteem that can lead to substance abuse
  • Teaching skills to manage destructive thought patterns and focus on positivity

Also, cognitive-behavioral therapy helps those dealing with addiction manage the triggers that keep them from their sobriety. Clients will learn skills to help in managing triggers, such as:

  • How to recognize and identify circumstances that lead to substance abuse
  • How to use CBT techniques to address and manage negative emotions and thoughts that lead to substance abuse
  • How to avoid trigger situations that lead to substance abuse

Is CBT the Right Fit For You?

At Solution Based Treatment, our caring, compassionate, and certified therapists will work with you to help pinpoint where the issues surrounding your addiction come from. The key is figuring out how to stop the triggers and urges that lead to destructive behaviors like substance abuse. Ignoring a problem doesn’t make it go away. The skills you learn as part of CBT are skills you take with you throughout your life and can positively impact any situation. Clients are actually encouraged to practice the techniques they learn in therapy on their own at home.

CBT also treats co-occurring disorders such as:

  • Eating disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
